News and Information about Course Tools

MyPCC New Login ScreenMyPCC is scheduled for a refresh on June 14, 2016. The new Course Tools, along with training opportunities, will be available to faculty on May 17, 2016. This will allow instructors to use the new system for summer courses. The content on this page is being updated to support the new version. Updated materials are not yet ready, but will be available before the May launch.

There are several notable changes coming to MyPCC Course Tools that instructors will want to know about. For example, instructors will need to retrieve the materials they wish to keep from the current interface as this will not be done for them.

Sneak Peek sessions will be offered during the first week of May at each campus. See the schedule below for dates/times (these are subject to change so check back frequently). Tool specific training will be schedule and announced in May.

ScreenshotWhat are Course Tools?

Course tools are applications that allow you to interact with your students in a variety of ways via the MyPCC portal. Course tools can be used to foster communication in and out of the classroom through email and discussions, and to share course files, links, photos and homework.

Course tools can do the following:

  • easily send email to your class
  • make course announcements
  • provide a course discussion area & chat
  • post links to websites
  • upload images & files for current term
  • easily clone content from term to term
